The little hippie village of Dharamkot is located near Dharamshala and Mcleodganj, but unlike these places, Dharamkot is a quaint town not visited by a lot of tourists. Popular as the Yoga Village, it is ideal to spend some time away, meditating in peace. The tiny hamlet is blessed with astounding views of the nearby Kangra Valley the mighty Dhauladhar ranges. Home to the Dhamma Shikhara Vipassana Meditation Centre and Tushita Buddhist Meditation Centre, Dharamkot manages to maintain a fine balance between a serene yoga retreat town, and an adventurist's oasis.
Trekking is one of the most popular activities at Dharamkot as it is the base to some of the popular hikes in the region including the Triund and Indraprahar Pass trek. This is probably why the tiny town is said to be a haven and a must-visit for backpackers and travellers. However, if you are someone who is looking for a relaxed holiday and prefer not to hike or walk around, avoid visiting Dharamkot. There is a single narrow pathway connecting the entire town, leading to and ending at the "Trek and Dine Cafe".
